Subject: Weird Night
Distinctly recall a few things from this show:
- Can't describe it but the vibe felt very strange that night.
- Jerry was taking long breaks between songs.
- Drums seemed to drag on, like he didn't want to come out.
- After one lead (might be Althea), Jerry was facing Billy with his back to the audience. Jerry finishes the lead and Billy gives him a nod as if to tell him he did okay and didn't screw it up.
- The Dew was not ripping like 5-8-77 or 6-7-77 but felt very emotional. Listen to Jerry sing the very last line (I guess it doesn't matter anyway) - it sounds like he is on the verge of crying. Felt like it too!
Subject: sure you were there?
Subject: jerry G - alcoholic????
People should avoid subjects they have NO knowledge about. Regarding the 'pers(ian)' If you know anything about opiod addiction and if you KNEW Jerry feel free to comment. Jerry dabbled with the 'pers' starting in late '76.I could be mistaken but the first time he became physically dependent might have been the summer of '77. He then quit 'cold turkey' as he didnt have a 'large' habit but was physically dependent. He was 'sick' for about a week detoxing. If you are familiar with opiod dependence the 1st 72 hours is the worst after that you feel weak for a few days.Over the next 3 years 78 - 80 Jerry had a pattern of going back to the 'pers' and then quitting, back and forth. From 81 thru 84 Jerry was an addict dependent on 'pers.' until it came to a head after the New Years shows in Dec of 84. In early 85 he detoxed with professional help because by this time his 'habit' was so large to detox 'cold turkey' would have been excruciating if not impossible and dangerous. If you were around in '82,83,84 there was no hiding his habit particularly in 83 and 84. Anyway... enough of this negativity. Jerry was a great guy. By the way it was the damn camels that killed him( and his voice). Its a shame he went back to smoking after the coma in 86. I still have a hard time understanding why Willy (Legate) offered Jerry his 1st post coma cig. Not that that would have stopped him Jerry had his foibles/ The last time I saw him was at The Metropolitan Museum of art in NYC in JUly of 95 before the Giants stadium gigs. He was standing outside the museum smoking making his usual asides, jokes about the need to quit. a month later it was all over
Subject: Grateful for Iko and Dew energy
It was amazing to see how the band fed off of the audience induced energy and how the audience fed off the energy coming from the stage. This absolutely helped to lead to the outstanding Dew that follows.
I was lucky enough to see many shows starting with the spring tour of 77 until the end. This was more fourth year in a row seeing them at this venue. While nothing comes close to the 77 show, each was a gem. Some had more energy then others. This one had the positive band/audience interaction for sure.
If you were lucky enough to be there as well, please write about what you remember.

There's that slide again in minglewood. It gets worse before it gets better.
Who and What is that pedal steel sounding thing in Friend of the Devil?
Subject: not very good
Subject: it's a keeper
Subject: special delivery
Estimated is exactly perfect with trippy jam. Only a few that are quite this good.
The jam, Iko, Dew and SSDD are off the charts.
Nice drums break for Jerry!
Subject: Space or Jam You Decide
Subject: Post drums MADNESS !!!
I'm a huge fan of the slower melty Aiko's of the late 70's compared to the cocaine infused versions that were played 3 times faster in the 80's and 90's
This DEW is seriously under-rated. No it's not Cornell, but boy oh boy does it build up and explode!!
The Sugar Mags, SSDD that follow is one of my all time favorites out of the 375 shows I attended and all the ones I've listened too 12-31-84 is another great Sugar Mags
I believe Space thru S.M. is used as filler on the Richmond 85 Dicks Picks
Subject: Space and Aiko>DEW is infact the highlight here.

Unusually poignant guitar playing from Jer. A very clean rendition of his mature refined style.
A grate recording to demonstrate the dynamics of classic primal GD playing to any skeptics (especially of the underrated 1980s).
The rest of the show is epic as well, but naturally the attention has come (deservingly) to the post drum segment. An absolute must listen. Perhaps the best Morning Dew of the 1980s.
